Scarborough GO Station Construction

We're Improving Your Station!

We’re enhancing safety and communication features at your station as part of GO Expansion.

What’s Changing

Station and parking changes

Starting Wednesday, July 8, there will be temporary changes to how you access and park at your station while the City of Toronto resumes their work to install a new water main pipeline.

      • Work will move towards the south-central/south-east area of the lot and 30 parking spaces will be closed.  
      • Between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., there will only be one way to enter and exit the station from Reeve Avenue. The contractor will have staff on site to direct vehicles.
      • Please follow signs to safely enter/exit the station during construction.

Construction is expected to be complete in about a month.

Please remember to give yourself extra time to get to where you’re going during construction.

Platform and boarding changes

Starting Monday, July 6, we’re going to make improvements to your station by enhancing accessibility, safety and communication features as part of GO Expansion. This will mean some temporary changes to how you get on the GO.

Travelling from Scarborough GO

      • We’re closing the east half of both platforms to install tactile yellow tiles and digital signs. Please use the west side of the platforms to board your train until further notice. All pedestrian tunnels will remain open during construction.
      • If you need the accessibility coach, please wait at the accessibility ramp to board the train.
      • Look for signs to show you where to stand and remember to spread out along the platform to help keep everyone safe.

Travelling from Union Station

      • Please listen to announcements on your train. Some trains will have more than six coaches, and in those cases, not all coach doors will open at Scarborough GO.
      • Check out our boarding guide below, before your trip.
      • If you need to use the accessible ramp, ask the customer service ambassador in the accessible coach for assistance

What’s Next

Later this summer, construction will switch to the west side of the platform. We will inform you of future boarding changes in advance.

How You'll Benefit

GO Expansion will increase the frequency and number of GO trains across the rail network, reduce congestion and connect a growing region with fast, reliable transit options to get you where you need to go. At your station we’re installing:

        • New yellow tiles at the edge of the platform to remind you how far back to stand. The best commute is always a safe one.
        • New digital signs to give you one more way to stay in the know.
        • A new secure bike room that will become part of our reserved bike program. 

Safety Never Stops

At GO Transit, your health and safety are our top priority. Safety never stops.

        • Please wear a face covering when you ride with us. We’ve made it mandatory for our staff to wear one on the job. It’s part of our commitment to protect you. We ask you to protect them, and your fellow riders.
        • Wash your hands often. When you can’t, hand sanitizer is readily available along your journey.  
        • A new secure bike room that will become part of our reserved bike program. 
        • Avoid lining up at the station. Load money onto your PRESTO card using the PRESTO App, or buy your ticket online.
